The lovely gowns on this page, although not made using authentic fabrics and methods, are ideal for specific occasions eg. school events when working to a budget.
|Thank you to Lesley for sending me these photos. She made this beautiful gown for her 10 year old granddaughter, Michelle, for a one-off school Tudor 'experience', which is why it had to be inexpensive. The main gown is made from a turquoise curtain and the puff sleeves are stuffed with polyester. The farthingale and bum-roll are made from curtain lining and the hoops are made from parcel strapping and curtain wire. The ruff is made from net curtain doubled over with a channel sewn along the middle which has elastic along it.|
